Cancellation 16 December

After an early morning inspection we have had no choice but to cancel the 16 December run on safety grounds, due to the icy conditions.

 

Cancellation – 14th October 2017

There will be no parkrun at Leicester Victoria this week due to the setup that will be taking place for the Leicester half / marathon which starts and finishes at the park on Sunday 15th October.

This is a good opportunity to visit one of the other nearby parkruns and try a different course. The nearest is Braunstone but there are plenty of other options nearby, including Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray, Conkers, Rutland Water and many others further afield.

We look forward to welcoming you all back on 21st October when we will return with a takeover hosted by the University of Leicester running club

For anyone running the Leicester half / marathon we wish you all the very best!

New scheme for beginners

Starting on 25 March and for the following 8 weeks we will be introducing run-walk pacers to Leicester Victoria parkrun. There will be two of these pacers - one for beginners and one for improvers.
The pacer for beginners will start by alternating one minute of running with one minute of walking. The amount of running will increase and the amount of walking will decrease over the course of the 8 weeks. This is a great way to get into running and there are many who have started in this way. The aim is that on 13th May our runners will be able to run for the whole 5k.
The other run-walk pacer will run for four minutes and then will briskly walk for 1 minute. Run sections will be about 10 minutes per mile. Lots of runners are finding that this run-walk method helps them to cover distances more quickly and easily.
If you would be interested in joining either of these groups please come along to Victoria Park for 8:45 on 25 March and in the subsequent weeks and please encourage others to come along, too.
